  Muintir Carraig na bhFear, ta an Lockdown chriochnaithe agus ta suil again go bhfuil daoine ag tnuth le chursai na Nollag agus an gnath shaol ag dul thar nais, diaidh ar ndiaidh. Caithfear a admhail ce go deacair agus chrua do bhi an bhliain seo.  Ni ligfear lamh a chasadh, seasamh nios giorra na dha meadair, do bhi iomai daoine in umar na haimileise.
